On 16 May, we received a new suggestion, numbered 2019.13 upon confirmed 
receipt, that ARIN move toward making service available via IPv6-only. 
Staff is reviewing this suggestion and will issue a formal response once 
analysis is complete.

The full text of the suggestion may be found below or at:



Description: Encourage IPv6 Adoption by making ARIN on-line services 
increasingly IPv6 only. (Start with, say, the 6th of each month being 
IPv6-only day where ARIN on-line turns off it's A records and it's IPv4 
address(es)). Beginning in 2020, additionally turn IPv4 off for the 
entire month of June. Beginning in 2021, add the month of December. In 
2022, make it the last month of each quarter (March, June, September, 
December). Beginning in 2023, just turn off IPv4 for all of ARIN on-line.

Value to Community: This can send a clear message to ARIN customers that 
IPv6 is the future of the internet and help them understand the need to 
deploy IPv6 within their network. By ramping up to ARIN on-line being an 
IPv6-only web site ver the course of a few years, people have time to 
deploy and test, but starting in 2023, even if you want to transfer in 
more IPv4, you should be able to get to ARIN via IPv6 to do so.
